Interested in acetylene for your application?
Acetylene is a flammable gas produced by reacting calcium carbide with water or as a secondary product from ethylene production. Acetylene is dissolved in a solvent in specially designed cylinders filled with a porous mass. Since the gas is dissolved into the mass, it is sometimes called 'dissolved acetylene'.
The exceptionally high flame temperature of acetylene (3100°C) makes it ideal for oxy-acetylene cutting, heat treating and torch brazing. It can also be used in analytical laboratories for organic synthesis and as a flame gas in analytical techniques such as Atomic Absorption (AA) Spectroscopy. Sometimes it is used for chemically-induced flower production.
Air Products offers acetylene gas in a variety of purities and in various modes of supply around the world ranging from cylinders to manifolded packs.
